But, he can play with straight bat that sometimes it's very difficult for top-class teams to get him out. If u go back to the first test and watch the highlights, you will see that shafiul was troubling shewag to play a cross shot to get him bowled out or lbw, as he got no feet movement. Shewag went back to his defensive style and tried to play with straight bat. Then when Rubel came to bowl, he started to play his natural game. An average of 50 tells u what shewag is really capable of. An average of 22 doesn't tell u.

THe way that raqibul got out, it will make u the old days of bd cricket, where opponent bowlers will bowl couple of short deleveries to you. then they will bowl you to play drive/cover drive shot. And guess what? slip catch!
Ok, Bar Sehwag. Hayden/Gilly/Ponting etc, when they go around smacking a run a ball innings, what do you say to that? And when Ashraful goes for it, its all wrong?
And everyone is so eager to find out Raqib/Tamim/Imrul's fault. But have you seen the indian bowlers bowl? I will have to agree with the Indian media and say India does have the best opening bowling pair atm. Specially the way Ishant bowl......amazing. And Zaheer is one of the wittiest pacer ever.
GODISNOWHERE now read it again.
